Lobby Park Inn Nice

Park Inn by Radisson Nice, France

Adding Colour to Life

Background and brief

After the successful launch of Bocca Buona restaurant, A Pinch of Design team were commissioned with the redesign of the hotel lobby to deliver a fresh and fun look that’s fitting with the Park Inn Next Generation design guidelines. New ambience had to bring a colorful and dynamic look, aimed at tech savvy, young and youthful world travelers who know what they want from a hotel stay and are willing to pay for it, but also seek value from money.

Our Solution

The design process started by infusing the Park Inn Next Generation principles into the existing lobby areas to create unique and exciting zones that blend into the overall scheme and contribute a different ambience.

The sense of arrival created is one of warm welcome with suspended lamps sloping as lighting clusters in front of the main staircase and double-height pillar. Guests go either upstairs to Bocca Buona bar and restaurant, enter conference rooms under the staircase or continue straight to the reception area, formed of three satellite desks to enhance interactivity, with a colorfully designed background.

The main hub of activity is the open ‘live-inn room’ arranged in the middle of the space with a mix of seatings in various colours, sizes and shapes to suit different uses. Surrounding areas give to more intimate ambience, with a small, cosy VIP corner and a comfortable relaxing zone featuring high back sofas and coffee tables in front of the conference room.

On the opposite side of the lobby a 24/7 Food & drink kiosk is placed by the open wooden shelves displaying newspapers, magazines, games and books to convey the sense of choice and ‘instant happiness’ integral to the Park Inn brand. A high table arranged with colorful chairs give for co-working, providing the inviting buzz, the warmth and boldness of colours for guests to fully enjoy the personality of the Park Inn by Radisson brand.
